Apparently - although there is some confusion about this matter, because nobody ever seems to know anything for sure around here - some of the crappy daytime programming on the BBC has been taken off so they can show people out playing in the snow.

That's so cute. I'm glad you're all enjoying it. Hee. (Er, apart from those of you who are stuck somewhere...) The people of Scotland are gazing at you fondly, as if you're excitable small children, and only occasionally making *slightly* scathing comments about how "tons of snow all over the UK OMG WTF ECT!1!!1!" means, mostly, London and the Midlands...

But we *are* excitable small children :D

I know :D I don't even know why I'm being sarcastic, because I get excited about snow even though I see it at least twice a year...

Now only about a quarter of an inch here, and thawing rapidly. Boring. :-(

I've just checked the weather forecast for here, and apparently we're going to get light snow tomorrow and heavy snow on Sunday. We shall see...

It did snow in Edinburgh last night, and again this morning. Not much, of course, but it makes things look engagingly different.

Last time this sort of thing happened I had to explain to people that a few inches of snow doesn't count as a blizzard - although I did have a friend who was waiting to fly passengers out of Stansted inform me that according to the official definitions, northern Essex wasn't actually far off having one. I wasn't going to dispute this with her - airline pilots get quite good met reports.

The BBC forecast says it's going to snow here in Glasgow tomorrow, but I'm not sure I believe it!

Heh, yes, I'm watching all the stuff about travel chaos and thinking "But that's barely an inch of snow!" But I suppose our record up here isn't too good for that, either.

Does it? Oh bum.

Not impressed by snow at all. I was probably hit by one too many Castlemilk Snowballs as a child...

(Put it this way, if the solid, rock-hard lump with a dusting of snow that knocks your glasses off and leaves you with a visible bruise turns out to be ice-like compacted snow, then you've got off very lucky.)

Urgh. Yes. I grew up on the coast, so we didn't get a lot of snow (my excuse for still being vaguely excited at it). We used to go sledging on frost on the golf course. That hurt a lot too, but at least it was our own fault, I guess.

I imagine the bruises would be less obvious too...

So far it's not really settling here, woohoo!

*is not a small excitable child, is a small grumpy adult*

I always really want it to land while it's snowing, and then as soon as I actually have to go out, I get grumpy at the slidiness and the slush. Actual crunchy snow would be OK.
Feb. 8th, 2007 12:01 pm (UTC)
Curse those slushy deposits!

If this means that some poor sod of a subtitler doesn't have to do Homes Under The Hammer, then I'm all in favour of London snow!
Feb. 8th, 2007 05:48 pm (UTC)
Oh, me too. I'm just annoyed they didn't take Car Booty off too.
Feb. 8th, 2007 12:04 pm (UTC)
This is my first experience of snow :p Of course I'm excitable!
Feb. 8th, 2007 05:48 pm (UTC)
I know, you're totally allowed :D I still get temporarily excited when I see it fall, and I see it at least twice a year...

It was snowing heavily enough in Stirling at about 9pm that we closed rehearsal early as our MD has to travel from Glasgow and our leading lady comes from Edinburgh. When I looked out of my back window (onto a carpark) this morning there was a good few inches of snow so I grumpily got ready early and left the house with 30 minutes to spare in case of travel chaos. For that reason I was at work 40 minutes early since there doesn't appear to be any snow anywhere in Stirling -except- the tops of the hills, and the carpark behind my flat...

Heh :D Very responsible of you...and how annoying of the snow. It seems to be very patchy up here.

Oh, god, yes. I'm all in favour of them removing crappy daytime TV for...pretty much anything else, really.
Feb. 8th, 2007 05:57 pm (UTC)
That's adorable! :)

I don't normally like going out in the snow.

I like looking at it, and looking at it falling.

Today it settled and was deep enough that I could tramp to work with no fear of slipping or sliding :-)

(S'pose I count as London-ish, but I didn't get excited at it, okay? :-p)

I would love some snow, I'm hoping one of these days I will get snowed in so much I don't have to go to work :) Extra days off are soooo worth gettin excited about.

There has been much snow-related panic down here, the thought of it alone seems to cause mass cornish hysteria! Everybody at my work has supplies and blankets in their cars cos after a couple of inches of snow last year you couldn't get out of Truro. It's really quite funny.

We had rain though. More rain than I have ever seen. Heavy, lazy splooshy rain in mass quantities. A lot of stuff is still flooded today. It sucked ass.

Hope you're well!
